  • A - PDO phase results in cooler oceanic water near Alaska, with warmer waters near Japan while a +PDO phase results in warmer waters near Japan and cooler waters near Alaska.

  • A cooling Pacifc longterm PDO change, not just La Nina would, overtime cut off the flow of warm tropical waters northward.

  • Even though a La Nina will influence the weather for months at a time, it's still a short-term climatological factor compared to something that climatologists call the Pacific Decadal Oscillation PDO, which is a long-term warming or cooling of the overall sea-surface temperature of the Pacific.

  • My personal theory is that the PDO is a long period shift related to long term solar features probably related to N-S polarity asymmetries in the IMF and oceanic heat content distribution, while ENSO is a shorter term measure of solar flux influence.

  • Both temp and precip signals bear a resemblance to the PDO, which is influential in this region.

  • I should clarify something I suggested earlier: actually the redistribution of the heat in the oceans may in general just be a part of the PDO, which is still poorly understood.

  • Pacific Decadal Oscillation

    from NASA "The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) is a long-term ocean fluctuation of the Pacific Ocean."
